I have been working at PAREXEL full-time for less than a year

Pros

Medical benefits and 401K --nothing else positive.

Cons

Only here 3 months and burned out already (I have over 10 yrs. experience working at other CROs and this is the worst). Work load is ridiculous with no time to come up for air. 12+ hr. days and working weekends/holidays. Line management support is a joke. You are thrown into it--sink or swim. Too many SOPs that totally bog down what you are trying to accomplish--waste of time and too confusing to read with pointless diagrams and "swim lanes". Beware about asking questions because you won't get answers. Hand off of studies from colleagues is non-existent. No information about where the study is, what the issues are, etc. Horrible communication. All I can say is DON'T WORK HERE!!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire more people so work can be more evenly distributed.
